H&M to create 800 jobs at new distribution centre
H&M is to create round 800 jobs when it opens a new distribution centre in Milton Keynes.
Spanning 73,000 square metres, the facility will be the retailer’s first omnichannel distribution centre. It will service H&M stores in the UK and Ireland and process online customer orders from the retailer's website.
Toni Galli, country manager for H&M UK & IE said: “We’re very much looking forward to opening a new logistics centre in Milton Keynes. Our customers are increasingly choosing to shop with us in an omnichannel way, so we see this facility as a really important way for us to integrate our online and store operations so that we can meet our customer’s changing needs more effectively.”
Recruitment for 800 new roles will commence shortly.
Fay Rennocks, logistics manager for H&M UK & IE, said: “We believe that the technological solutions in place at our new DC will reduce the need for our employees to engage in repetitive tasks, while enabling improvements for customer service. We’re pleased to be able to offer some exciting new roles in an area of ever-increasing importance within our business.”
